. the obama people are a little more confident right now. the romney people keep harping on pennsylvania, on the idea if they can't win ohio's 18 electoral votes they can substitute it with 20 from pennsylvania. i've been told that the president is not going to pennsylvania but bill clinton will be in pennsylvania tomorrow. the obama people are confident enough about the flanks maneuver that romney is trying in pennsylvania not to bother sending the president there. the president will be in ohio tomorrow, which is his center of gravity and has been from the beginning. that's the electoral college reason, because without ohio and pennsylvania, it's virtually impossible for romney to get it done. >> i can give you the same reporting. they don't want it to look like romney has something going in pennsylvania. >> if it were really that close, chris, they would send him. >> let's take a look at this article. it was a very well written article and got nothing but anger from white people. >> we got the word from michael, i think it was you, howard, how angry the readers were because he suggeste

of the campaign today. mitt romney at lunchtime, president obama, there right now. our chief correspondent is there as well. jessica, that city is getting plenty of attention today. at least the two men weren't there at the same time. that would have been a bit awkward. >> yeah, although they would have had an unscripted debate. that would have been unusual and probably good for the public. this state getting so much attention because it is one of those must-win battlegrounds, don. and it tells us so much about the -- the map tells us so much about where they're fighting in these final days. where we are right now is not ju just -- it's sort of a two-for for the president. not just fighting ie way, but across the river. the president fighting hard to hold onto wisconsin as a blue state. he is visiting it three times in the closing days of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it j

debates gave him a second look in such a way that he can carry that through election day. the obama folks say look at the electoral math. we could be in for quite a finish here, if they're both right. >> they could be both right. because we've talked about the popular vote thing and let me throw you -- we've seen some polling out today. if you look at the president's lead, for instance, on the west coast in california, the lead has been cut in half. i've done some math, you can see where mitt romney makes up some 6 to 8 million votes. john mccain lost by 10 million votes. he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the battleground states. let's go to our battleground map. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> all right. more to come fr

just doing your vote for romney because you're upset at obama, right? n no. i think there is a case to be made against obama. there is also a case to be made for romney. mitt romney, i have to say, among the republicans in the field, i am a democrat, but among the republicans in the primary field, romney was the only one who i thought was in the end, could be a credible alternative to obama. but as we've gotten closer, i think romney is much better than merely a credible alternative. i think his policies are sound. i think he's got a real idea how to create jobs. the other thing i like about him is that there is not a hint of scandal in this man's life. neither in his personal life, nor his career. this is an honest man full of integrity and it will be nice to have that in the white house. >> gretchen: when i interviewed hi and ann together three years ago issues they said to me then, you will never read about us in the tabloids, ever. they said it am fatticcally. listen to ryan and romney as they seem to be talking about hope and change. imagine that. >> this is a turfing point for

that the obama people had kind of shied away from earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him, as andrew said, because you might like him. i think people say, look, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is buttressing the attack. >> agree? >> i don't agree. if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform, if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now is totally different than what he is saying now. >> don't people normally state that. >> i don't think he flipped to a policy. i think he's basically just, he's got a thing in writing that my policy is "a." you say "a" is my policy, but it's not. >> but the problem is obama is eroding his own trust and credibility by not settling on one. you can't be wrong and coreless. i think obama has underlined his own attack by not being able to settle on

believe liberalism true or right in any objective sense. obama is not a post modernist i'm happy to report, but the confusion about truth, very visible in his discussion of slavery and the declaration of indense in "the audacity of hope," and his confusion of the truth combined with the liberal impatience with the constitution and its forms, makes a harrowing conversation. i am the change, as mr. obama almost said, reminds us that not every change is an improvement. a movement that began by promising to every american a new freedom and a new deal, beyond necessaritiveness runs from paying its own bills, a movement that promised complete spiritual fulfillment in a great society incoming the right to choose one's own values and lifestyle now verges on confessing that no lifestyle can be said to be better than any other. the movement that put such faith in its leaders' ability to understand, predict, and control the future now faces a very uncertain and perilous future with or without barack obama. thank you very much.
